The group is coordinated by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità and the postal police also take part in it. The objective is clear: to develop the knowledge and methods of defense of the information systems used daily in healthcare. To protect citizens’ health data (such as insurance and pharmacy houses), it is necessary to improve the defense of the country’s health facilities against cyber attacks and to define adequate and updated training systems for the health professions.

What’s wrong with this specific area? “Rules and regulations – explains Mauro Grigioni, director of the National Center of Innovative Technologies in Public Health – are there. However it is still insufficient awareness of how important behaviors are in using devices connected to the network, to safeguard the medical act and the data of patients”.

The Group’s activity is technical-scientific and based on the contribution of knowledge and experience of the experts in the sector.
